Ok try as I might I cannot get clutterflow to work in nautilus elementary, I have seen the posts about vblank such as nautilus elementary coverflow not working ~ I have also found out that it works while running under root as in this post nautilus-clutterflow only works in "sudo-mode" I even tried the libpoppler route Clutterflow not working on Nautilus Elementary but none of them work. There is no black box where clutterflow is supposed to be, no nothing. I press F4 and absolutely nothing happens. The embedded terminal is fine however. I even tried the gconf settings to show clutter and clutter test = 0 nothing works. Thank you everyone for taking the time to try to help, it's appreciated.

Clutterflow seems to not be working anymore on 11.04, and when it does the icons it shows are corrupted so, it's of no use. – Uri Herrera Aug 2 '11 at 3:54

Try this: Alt+F2 (or in terminal) type gconf-editor

Then Apps -> Nautilus -> Preferences

check "show_clutter" and set "clutter_test" to 0

ok, then nautilus -q and try F4

in my case, it worked.
